want to run dual monitors Vostro 200 slim unit 4inches wide

Hello any help would be great.

I want to run dual monitors on this machine.  I tried putting a GEFORCE 210 in and it 

would not work correctly and their tech support stated the computer is not have enough power.

What kind of upgrade powersupply can I get.

Thanks a million..

The Sapphire 6570 will support dual monitors and is compatible with the stock power supply. I have one installed in my circa-2005 Optiplex GX620 Small Form Factor, and the same card was previously installed in an Optiplex 960 Small Form Factor powering dual monitors.

I suspect that the GT210 didn't work for some other reason, unrelated to the power supply. I was unable to get a 9400GT to work in my 220s, yet ATI/AMD cards worked without issue.

if you are not doing any gaming the low profile hd 5450 or 6450 will work too ... if there is a chance you might do a little gaming the hd 6570 rdunnill suggested is the one to go with.

It's a few dollars more for the 6570, but I have confirmed it supports dual monitors.
